Finally...twin turbos for my LFX

I finally made up my mind and pulled the trigger on the Fabberge twin turbo kit for my 13 2LT/RS. It's been a long time coming! I have 31,000 miles on my car and couldn't wait any longer. To start with I'm going to run the kit on just wastegates which should be about 7psi. Then later i can upgrade to the boost controller and air/fuel gauge and up the boost to 12psi.

Then maybe later on forged pistons/rods and LF3 hpfp and more boost...

Bring on the permagrin!!

edit: I know I started two threads but the other one has a title that makes no sense so I made this one

Keep us updated. This is the same route I want to take myself and with a car with that many miles I want to know how it will turn out. This is my Daily Driver I also want to upgrade the internals if it can handle the extra amount of boost. The setup and the videos of the other cars that have it so far seems amazing. Some issues here and there but it seems worth the risk.

Yeah I don't know if I'll be getting dyno numbers but I'll definitely be getting 1/4 mile track numbers.

That should be alot of fun, I look forward to running it at the track. I'll have to be ccareful though launching with these toothpick axles. SS rear diff will definitely be on my list.

30,000 miles is nothing, I'm still under warranty lol. And it's been alot of highway miles too. We've taken quite a few trips in the camaro.

I have almost 25,000 miles on it and by the time I have enough to save for it I will well over 30,000 miles. And my main worry is the internals won't hold because of all that pressure it will handle on a daily basis since this baby is my daily driver.

Seems the internals are fine up to 500whp or so, I wouldn't worry about it.

Man those turbos sure are beautiful. Just to play around with the numbers if I were to do a ips kit with all the optional upgrades that would bring me to 7,200 k I think I read some where that ips will actually install this for free is that true? About how much hp and torque can I expect out of my 1LS? If they do install for free how much do you think it would cost to ship my car to them in a closed carrier? I'm from New Orleans!

IPS numbers for a manual will be about 490whp.

I'm not running this kit but at 429rwhp or at 501rwhp (depends on boost setting) and I'm still on stock clutch. I got my kit installed at 6k miles and at 58k miles now. I did a Amsoil trans fluid swap and just swap out the dirty clutch fluid every 2 weeks (need the GTO reservoir). .BUT I don't drag race and all my races are from a roll. Which makes a huge difference on clutch abuse.
